Kingdom Hall, Market Harborough
This morning I was passing the Jehovah's Witnesses' hall in Market Harborough. There was the notice of a planning application on the gate and a lot of people around.
I asked one of them and, sure enough, it is being demolished in a few days so that they can build a better church in its place.
Later on I came back to try some more shots in case the light was better. This time I was invited inside to see some photos that were taken when the Hall was put up in the late 1960s.
It is hardly a thing of beauty, but it has been there for as long as I have known the town. And it did outlive the railway to Rugby that once ran behind it and the cattle market that used to face it across the road.
